Staff Report

Auxilians and staff broke ground this afternoon on the Auxilian Memorial Garden at Los Alamos Medical Center.

The Auxilian Memorial Garden has been funded by donations in the name of previous auxilians who have passed away by those who want to honor and remember them. 

This project has been in the planning stages for more than a year. The vision of the Auxilians is to provide a quiet contemplative site with cascading flowers of various pink hues to remind one of a peaceful waterfall, for patients, staff and visitors.
